Henry Duyore's Straight Bourbon Whiskey - SIPN BOURBON

Henry Duyore's Straight Bourbon Whiskey

91.3 Proof
Ransom Spirits
750 ML (Standard)
On the palate the flavors are complex and well balanced.The bourbon is both sweet and earthy with a subtle spice kick on the back of the tongue from the rye.The oak character has a slightly resinous quality to it which evokes an image of being in a slightly damp coastal forest.
The nose is very pleasant with strong notes of vanilla, leather and oak undergirded by aromas of malt and caramel.
After swallowing the Whiskey, the spice slowly tapers into a long and light finish of caramel, vanilla and tobacco.
Ransom Spirits was founded by Tad Seestedt in 1997 and in 2008, the distillery moved to its current home on a forty-acre farm in Sheridan oregon.While   Read More Seestedt distills a variety of spirits, his Old Tom Gin is probably his most successful and widely distributed product.Henry DuYore's was first released in 2012 and has a mash bill of 56% Corn, 31% Rye and 13% malted barley.The Whiskey was made using a hand-hammered, direct-fired French alembic pot still.Henry DuYore was aged a minimum of four years in new American oak bourbon barrels, with some percentage finished in French oak barrels.I am using the past tense here because Seestedt recently told me that he doesn't plan to keep making this bourbon.However, he told me that he still has a few barrels of it quietly maturing which he will eventually release as a special extra-aged edition.   Read Less
